There is so much versatility to this art form that I love so much.


As much as I resonate with the power of fictional storytelling, narrative nonfiction is an elegant medium to engage and inform readers that wouldn't pick up a novel.


When an active duty homicide detective asked me to collaborate on a nonfiction book, I knew narrative non-fiction was how I wanted to write it, and in 2019 I presented at the British Society of Criminology conference at the University of Lincoln, U.K. on using arts-based approaches to help bridge the gap between the public and police.


Art matters. Write on.
